It’s the most wonderful time of the year and for some couples in the region there was an extra special reason to celebrate as they welcomed their tiny bundles of joy.

Little Adam and Emilia were born on Christmas Eve and on Christmas morning respectively, each adding to the magic of the much-loved festive holiday.

Baby Adam arrived into the world first at 8.43pm on December 24, with just ours to spare until Christmas.
